RANDOLPH COUNTY, N.C. — The victim of a fiery crash in Randolph County early Tuesday morning has been identified.

According to a spokesperson for the N.C. Highway Patrol in Raleigh, the victim has been identified as Billy James Hill, 42, of Asheboro.

The deadly crash happened around 1:15 a.m. on Old N.C. 49 in the Farmer community.

Troopers say the Ford Mustang that Hill was driving slammed into the end of a concrete bridge at a high rate of speed.

Speed was most likely the factor, as the speed at impact was 100 mph in a 55 mph zone, according to officials.

The victim and car were reportedly burned beyond recognition.
